    Exclamation Unknown message?!

    Recently my mileage clock has been displaying some text above the numbers, as shown:

    I n S P
    7 6 0 9 6

    I have no idea what it means so can anyone help me out?

    My car is a 01 plate 1.8 Coupe.

    Coolant level means what it says lol Top up your header tank

    There is a way to turn off the inspection light, search it on here, someone has the answer. Personally mine appears daily but doesn't really bother me

    Put your key in the ignition.
    Hold down the mileage reset button and turn the key to position 2 (dash lights on / engine not running) keeping the button pressed in.

    Keys in the ignition and hold in the mileometer button. Turn the keys to the second position and the insp should turn to "----" and then start to flash. Once it has done that turn the ignition off and then all should be good.
